Carvedilol is a potent non-selective beta blocker in treating high blood pressure and heart attack. It belongs to the class of beta blockers and is one of the most recommended drugs for treating heart, kidney failure and hypertension.
Important facts of Cardivas (Carvedilol)
Carvedilol is given for hypertension, which decreases the workload of the heart. It also decreases the risk of various heart conditions:
— Mild to moderate hypertension
— Post heart failure and prevents further worsening of the condition
— Left ventricular dysfunction after a heart attack
— Other cardiovascular diseases, etc.
Carvedilol is a non-selective beta blocker. It binds to beta receptors in the heart and vascular smooth muscles and inhibits their action. This all results in the following effects:
— Relaxes the blood vessels and aids smooth arterial blood flow
— Effortless pumping of blood out of the heart and around the body
— Reduces the high level of blood pressure
— Provides oxygen by decreasing energy used by the heart to pump blood around the body
— Reduces workload of the heart and the amount of oxygen needed to pump the blood around the body
— Improves survival and prevents future heart attacks by correcting improper electrical activity of heart blood vessels resulting in fast or slow heartbeat
Cardivas block some chemicals in the heart and blood vessels for treating hypertension by slowing the heart rate to beat with less force. For the treatment of angina, the medicine relaxes blood vessels for easy blood circulation and supplies good oxygen supply to the heart. For treating heart failure, Cardivas make your heart efficient in pumping blood.
